Give a Hand
McHappy Day and “Give A Hand®” in the U.S.: Bringing Hope and Happiness to Families in Need
On November 10, McDonald’s celebrates McHappy Day in the U.S., an important day to call attention to the needs of children and the official kick-off of the 10th annual “Give A Hand” fundraiser to benefit RMHC the company’s “Charity of Choice” for 38 years.
The fundraiser will be in participating U.S. restaurants November 10 – 20, for customers to show their support for the Charity by purchasing a paper Hand for $1, $3, or $5. All proceeds from the paper Hand sales will be donated to RMHC. And, with every purchase of a McDonald’s Happy Meal® or Mighty Kids Meal® throughout the year, a donation is made to RMHC. These fundraisers are a few ways McDonald’s encourages customers to give back and help bring happiness to families in need.
In addition to the in-restaurant fundraising program, customers can also show their support for RMHC by participating in the “Give A Hand” online sweepstakes. Customers are invited to write messages of support for RMHC on their hand, take a picture, and submit it online via @McDonalds Twitter page for the chance to help RMHC and win prizes. Each day throughout the campaign, one winner will be selected at random to receive a $50 Arch Card for themselves and a $500 donation for their local RMHC or Ronald McDonald House Chapter.
